About

Silk Painting

Firstly a design is needed, either in my head or pre-drawn on paper.
The design is drawn onto the silk – a steady hand is needed as mistakes
cannot be undone!
The silk is dried for 6 hours and heatset. Now I can add the colours, layer
upon layer until I am happy. Another 6 hours drying, and then any touch-ups
or special effects can be done.
I usually let the silk rest for at least a day or two, And then into a commercial
steamer for half a day to set the colours.Then the silk is washed to remove any
residual chemicals, and pressed, and is now ready for framing in its mount.
I often paint special scenes for each area I sell in, making the images relevant to
the stores, and to the local customers.
I also do paint commissions, as long as I am given reasonable artistic license, but happy to base anything on your own ideas or photos. All production rights are fully reserved and the copyright of each image is fully retained by me, whether commissioned or not.
